I would like to thank all
the residents who exercised their Constitutional right to vote on November 4th. I would like to thank my friends, family, my
wife Lisa, my son Tommy, and fellow board members. Let me also thank those who
voted for me and bestowed upon me the assignment of Mayor of Kenilworth. It's truly an honor. I am humbled by the support that I received
during the campaign and on Election Day. Thank you for the trust, faith and believing in me.
For those who did not
vote for me, I understand the reason why as there were two qualified and
honorable Candidates. Now that the
election is over let's work together for a better Kenilworth. The designations as
Republican and Democrat exist on Election Day, but once the votes are tallied and
the victors declared and we take our seats on the Governing Body up here, we
are no longer members of the Republican or Democratic party, but citizens who
are working together to keep Kenilworth a great place to live.
Keeping Kenilworth a
great place to live will be a team effort. A team consisting of elected officials, local organizations and most
important, you the residents and taxpayers of Kenilworth. It can always be better, so together let's
make Kenilworth a better place to live and raise our children and
As any other team, we all
have the same goal. We may play
different positions, but whether we are parents or one of Kenilworth's active
seniors, we are all Kenilworth's citizens and taxpayers. Together we can all make our lovely little
town the place we call HOME. A better
place – better than yesterday; better than today; and better for the future.
The Borough is currently
seeking volunteers for the Board of Health Committee, Recreation Committee, and a
Representative to the Union County Transportation Advisory Board. Any resident interested should send an email
to me at F.Pugliese@KenilworthNJ.org.
I would like to wish
everyone a Happy and Safe Holiday Season. Please join us on Wednesday evening, December 10th at 7:00
p.m. in front of Borough Hall for Kenilworth's Annual Tree Lighting ceremony.
